Frå Amerika får eg opplyst at Sander Sanderson skal vera fødd i eller nær Christiania 17.5.1859, og han skal ha utvandra til Amerika, rimelegvis med foreldri sine, kring 1872.  Han gifte seg i Chicago, IL 25.1.1890 med Jennie Johnson, fødd i Bergen 6.12.1866, og dei slo seg ned som farmarar i Sverdrup township, Griggs Co., ND der Sander døydde 13.7.1941.

 

FT1910 Griggs Co., ND (utv.år 1871): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RV8-9MQD

FT1920 Griggs Co., ND (utv.år 1871): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GRJM-HKC

FT1930 Griggs Co., ND (utv.år 1871): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9RZK-CX

 

Ifølgje FamilySearch var denne Sander Sanderson fødd 17.5. og døypt i Vestre Aker 9.10.1859, men denne barnedåpen finn eg ikkje i Vestre Aker: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/574/161

Her er innførsli frå FamilySearch:

 

Name Sander Sandersen
Gender Male
Birth Date 17 May 1859
Christening Date 09 Oct 1859
Christening Place Vestre Aker, Oslo, Oslo, Norway
Father's Name Sander Olsen
Mother's Name Berthe Nielsdatter

 

Men her er huslyden i FT1865, busett i Øvregaten i Gamle Aker: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/census/person/pf01038027048141

 

Faren Sander Olson skal vera fødd i Aker kring 1822 og Bertha Nilsdotter på Biri kring 1824.

 

Eg finn ikkje vigsli deira, men dette er vel dåpen til Sander Olson, fødd 18.5. og døypt 17.6.1821 i Bjølseneiget i Aker, foreldri Ole Sanderson og Kari Eriksdotter: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/7719/44?indexing=

 

Eg sit att med følgjande utfordringar:

 

** Kvar i Aker /(bydel) kan me seia at denne huslyden budde fram til utvandringi i 1871?

 

** Sjekka dato og stad for fødsli til Sander Sanderson 17.5.1859?

 

** Utvandringi deira 1871?

 

** Kvar kan me seia at Sander Olson voks opp? - kva plass under Bjølsen?

 

** På kva gard/plass på Biri var Bertha Nilsdotter fødd og oppvaksi?

 

Eg takkar so mykje på førehand for alle gode tips!

Her fant jeg en biografi over Sander og hans familie fra Griggs County History 1879 - 1976:

 

http://www.webfamilytree.com/Griggs_County_Centennial/sverdrup_township/sanderson.htm

Sander Sanderson, one of the early settlers in what was to become Griggs County, North Dakota arrived in the Sheyenne valley in 1881.  He had been born in Oslo, (Christiania) Norway on May 17, 1859.  His father, Olson Sanderson, came to America in 1869 and his wife and youngest son, Sander, arrived in 1871.  Later, two older brothers Carl and Olaf, and a sister Annie, joined the family in Illinois.  Sander learned the trade of cooper, or barrel-maker, and in 1881 he and his brother-in-law, Robert Busse, Annie's husband, set out for North Dakota.  They left Chicago in early April and arrived in Mayville later that month.  They then walked some forty-four miles to the Sheyenne Valley, arriving at the Thorson farm on April 28, 1881.  They stayed there a day or so and then took squatter's claim on 160 acres each.  Sander's property later, after survey, became part of Section 24, Sverdrup Township, Griggs County.  Busse's land ended up in Steele County.

Like many settlers, Sander dug a sod house to shelter himself until he could cut enough logs to make a log cabin large enough for himself and his parents.  In 1882 Sander's parents arrived to work on and hold the claim while Sander went to Minneapolis to work in a flour-barrel mill.  He continued to work and send money to his parents until 1884.  On April 4th of that year he sold his interest in the barrel mill and returned to the homestead to work his claim.  He remained there until his death in 1941.

On January 25, 1889, Sander married Jennie Gertrude Johnson, who, like himself, had been born in Norway, at Bergen.  Her family was from Wisconsin, and Sander had met her in Chicago.  Their first child, Herman Teodor, was born in the log cabin in July 1890.  By about 1900 Sander and Jennie had built a neat frame house on the cast bank of the river for their growing family.  All told, seven children were born, four of whom reached adulthood.  They were: 

Herman Teodor, July 16, 1890-April 11, 1964

 Gertrude Marie, January 19, 1892-March 21, 1896

 Adolph Gerhart, March 22, 1894-March 5, 1895

 Priscilla, December 18, 1899-October 23, 1905

 Silvanus (Sandy), September 10, 1903

 Torval (Torry), October 2, 1906

 Alford Gerhart, May 14, 1909-September 10, 1946.

Herman married Bertha Christofferson and made his home in and around Guthrie, Minnesota.  They had nine children, seven daughters and two sons.  Silvanus married Mae Flaagan, and they lived for a time in Cooperstown, eventually moving to Portland, Oregon, and then to Eugene, Oregon, where they still live.

Torry's first wife was Beatrice Ladbury.  They had no children, and in the mid-30's Torry moved to Oregon, eventually settling in Eugene.  He served in the Navy during WW II, and after the war married Delta A. Johnson from Utah.  They have three children, two sons and a daughter.  Torry, too, still lives in Eugene.

Alford married Rudha Heskin, who still lives in Cooperstown and runs the beauty shop there.  They had two daughters, Jean and Karen.  Karen lives in New York, and Jean, who married Don Savre, still lives in Cooperstown.  She and their two sons, Jason and Preston, are the only direct descendants of Sander and Jennie Sanderson who still live in Griggs County.

Hjarteleg takk til Lars J. for fleire spennande og nyttige innlegg!

 

Eg har studert innleggi, og for meg ser det ut som om Sander Sanderson er fødd på Vestre Sagene som då må vera ein del av Vestre Aker(?).

 

Sagene kjem òg fram som bustad på Bertha Nilsdotter då foreldri gifte seg i 1849, og eg var litt i stuss på om ho kunne vera oppvaksi der?

 

MEN, eg finn dåpen hennar på Biri (fødd i Bergseiget) i 1823: https://www.digitalarkivet.no/view/255/pd00000006711066

 

og so finn eg konfirmasjonen hennar i Båbergseiget på Biri i 1838: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/view/9298/122

 

Bertha må soleis ha vore bortimot «vaksi» då ho flytte til Sagene, og truleg er ikkje foreldri flytte med ho...(?)

 

Elles les eg av biografien i innlegg #4 at far hans Sander, Sander Olson, skal ha utvandra i 1869, men i FT1900 (jmf. innlegg #5) står det 1870 som utvandringsår, og eg trur det kan vera denne emigranten frå 1870: http://gda.arkivverket.no/cgi-win/webcens.exe?slag=visbase&sidenr=1&filnamn=EMIOSLO&gardpostnr=12718&merk=12718#ovre

 

Eg er derimot ikkje i stand til å finna Sander og mori som skulle vera reiste i 1871!?

 

Etter dette sit eg att med følgjande «hovudutfordringar» når det gjeld Sander Sanderson (jmf. lista i innlegg #1):

 

** Kvar i Aker (bydel) kan me seia at denne huslyden budde fram til utvandringi i 1871 - Sagene i Vestre Aker?

 

** Utvandringi til Sander Sanderson og mori Bertha i 1871?

 

** Kvar kan me seia at Sander Olson voks opp? - kva plass under Bjølsen?

 

** På kva plass under Båberg på Biri var Bertha Nilsdotter oppvaksi?

 

Ein ny kjempetakk for framifrå bistand i freistnadane på å komplettera denne biografien (med utgongspunkt i Jennie Johnson)!
